New carpet installation in an Austin, TX home

If you want to update your home with new carpet, you may have questions about the installation process. As a carpet installation expert serving the Austin, TX area, we understand that the process can initially seem overwhelming, but we're here to help! Below, we've compiled some frequently asked questions about carpet installation.

1. How long does carpet installation take?

The time it takes to install carpet can vary depending on the room's size and the job's complexity. On average, it takes one day to install carpet in a standard-sized room. However, larger rooms or those with intricate layouts may take longer.

2. Does furniture need to be removed for the installation?

Yes, all furniture will need to be removed from the room while the installation is taking place. Schedule an in-home consultation with us, and we can discuss this topic further and any other questions you have.

3. What should I expect during the installation process?

Our installation team will begin by removing your old flooring and preparing the subfloor for the new carpet. They will then lay down the padding and cut and stretch the carpet to fit the room. While it is a fascinating process, give the installation team the space they need to ensure safety and quality.

4. How do I prepare my home for carpet installation?

Before our installation team arrives, you should clear a path for them to move their equipment into the room. It's also a good idea to vacuum the room to remove any debris on the floor. Finally, ensure that pets or children are kept out of the installation area for their safety.

5. Can I install carpet myself?

This is not the product for a DIY project. Carpet installation requires specialized tools and techniques that take years to master. Opting out of a professional installation could require future fixes, and void the warranty, costing you more in the end.
